Whether you’re thinking about becoming the person behind the wheel or the desk – have you ever thought about the role transportation plays within society?
95% of goods consumed on a daily basis have went through a system of transportation. If we didn’t have these systems and sectors in place now, how would you be wearing the clothes on your back or consuming the food you eat on a daily basis?
Not only is the haulage industry under immense pressure in terms of keeping up with demand from supply chains, but another challenge that is faced is the ageing workforce, nearing on retirement. As the sector moves towards the retirement age, businesses must put measures in place to bring on new staff so company and trade information can be absorbed by the new era of drivers like office staff and warehouse operators, all whilst owners and decision makers explore new technology and methods to help future proof the industry.
Whether you’re looking into becoming a driver to transport the goods to-and-from depos, or looking to become part of the crucial team that organise the route planning and job allocation process, there’s an abundance of roles to fill.
With the right training in place, bringing new recruits into haulage businesses means existing knowledge from employees will be absorbed and practiced, meaning the transition of staff moving roles will be seamless. An industry with an ever-increasing demand should give you confidence you're stepping into a sector with longevity in terms of your career prospects.
